I Can Be So ADD

I'm finally semi-caught up on my work so I decided to reward myself this morning with three hours of uninterrupted writing time. I managed to finish a pretty difficult chapter but I also did the following:
  • Swiffered the house. I LOVE my Swiffer Vac. I think it's revolutionary for cleaning hardwood floors. I'm such a huge fan of this product don't be surprised if in the future I decide to dedicate a whole blog post to the awesomeness that is the Swiffer Vac.
  • Wash the dishes.
  • Put up my laundry.
  • Brushed the cats only after I mused for several minutes about how happy they get after they poo in the litter box and wonder what the world would be like if humans bolted from their bathrooms in a fury of glee every time they made a number two.
I'm at the end of my story and it's so complicated and I'm always worried about the execution that I'd like to think these ADD moments are more times of reflection rather than avoidance or procrastination for the creative task at hand.


  1. Not procrastination... just giving things time to simmer/marinate... Good luck with tying the threads back together. (As a fellow complex plotter, I know how super-super-not-fun that can be).

  2. It's super-super-super-super-really-really-not-fun.

  3. My favorite home appliance is my Electrolux Ergorapido cordless vacuum. I love this thing. So. Much. Plus, the name is just cool. Nothing like a good sweeper/vac. And the cat litter makes it an absolute necessity.
